They’re the most glamorous amateur sleuths going. We gather with the Harts in an old, dark house in search of hidden treasure….and murder. Hart to Hart was an extremely entertaining murder mystery show that ran for five seasons, beginning in 1979, starring Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers.

Hitch your wagon to episode 34 for a journey back to this nightmare on the prairie. This is one hardcore episode of Little House you won’t want to miss this Halloween.
TV TERROR takes a lighter look at the spy genre with television’s favorite screw-up secret agent. Max and 99 go to London to investigate Jack the Ripper and a fiendish wax museum in this two-part episode, House of Max (1970).
Things gets downright spooky in this episode from season 4 of The Andy Griffith Show. When Opie’s baseball lands in the old Rimshaw place, it stirs up the heebie jeebies in Mayberry because this house is rumored to be haunted.
They’re the spawn of Satan, dormant for centuries, but awakened once more to rival mankind. They are the GARGOYLES (1972). We take a look at this CBS Tuesday Night movie from the movie-of-the-week golden age, and fold our wings and bow are horns in honor of the recently departed Bernie Casey. Come fly with us.
You find TV TERROR in the craziest places – this week, it’s marooned on a desert island with some frightened castaways. We strand ourselves on Gilligan’s Island with a Ghost-a-Go-Go, the title of a scary-fun episode from season two, 1966. Enjoy.
Frank De Felitta gave us some great stuff: Audrey Rose, The Entity, and Dark Night of the Scarecrow. But did you know that he gave us James Brolin in a department store, hounded by killer dogs? It’s TRAPPED from 1973, an ABC Movie of the Week.
With the passing of TV-icon, Richard Anderson, let’s break the ice on Kolchak with the second telefilm in the series, THE NIGHT STRANGLER (1973), directed by Dan Curtis from the Richard Matheson script. We’ll also talk Stephen King’s IT, open the listener voice-mail bag, and tie up some loose ends regarding Tobe Hooper’s TV filmography.
We’ve lost Tobe Hooper. He made his mark on cinema, but also had a career on the small screen. We remember his lesser-known TV-film, I’M DANGEROUS TONIGHT (1990), starring Mädchen Amick and Anthony Perkins, all about an ancient cloak that corrupts anyone who touches it.
It was like CREEPSHOW for TV. It was George A. Romero’s dark anthology series, TALES from the DARKSIDE, one of the best shows of its kind and a gift to eighties television.
